  • Pump and pumping station monitoring
    Monitoring systems provide real-time data that can help you not only to prevent flooding and other incidents, but also to optimize the operation of individual pumps and entire pumping stations. Sulzer has a full range of monitoring systems for easy surveillance of pumps and pumping stations. Able to log both hydraulic and electrical data, the systems give you instant access to alarms, pump status, level information and trends. These are available not only on site, but also remotely via PC software or a smartphone app.

  • Pumping station control
    Control systems provide functionality and data that can be used to improve the availability of pumps, pumping stations and entire collection networks. They are a simple way to reduce not only the risk of downtime and flooding, but also maintenance and energy costs. Sulzer has a full range of control systems that are as easy to use as they are sophisticated.
